Instructions to create the floral felt hair comb
1 Die-cut (or cut out with scissors) eleven flowers and eleven leaves from the felt.
2 Sew a running stitch as shown in the photo.
3 Pull the thread to draw in the flower, add a few stitches to secure and knot.
4 Stitch the flower to the hair comb, wrapping the thread around the comb several times to secure in place.
5 Sew and bind more flowers and leaves along the hair comb (running stitches along the centre of the leaves to add to the design are optional).
6 You can add a few flowers or as many as you like, building up the effect as desired.
It’s as simple as that!
Once you master making these simple felt flowers, why not try adding them to hairbands, hair slides or shoe clips
